Until people of Crimea, the 95% that voted to leave Ukraine, are forced to rejoin and be slaughtered?  Wait, I thought that this was what George Soros wanted?

UN/TASS/. The United States should keep its anti-Russian sanctions in place as long as Crimea remains a part of Russia, Washington’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council.

“Crimea is a part of Ukraine,” she said. “Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control over the peninsula to Ukraine.”

She added that her country was seeking to improve relations with Moscow, at the same time asserting that Crima’s reunification with Russia was “aggression,” “occupation” and “military intervention.”

Crimea and Sevastopol voted to become a part of Russia on March 16, 2014, in a historical referendum in which 80% of the republic’s registered voters took part. A total of 96.7 of those who cast their ballots in Crimea and 95.6 of those in Sevastopol supported reunification with Russia.

The move was sealed by a treaty, signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin on March 18, 2014. The document was ratified by the upper chamber of the Russian parliament, the Federation Council, three days later.

In July 2014, the European Union and the United States imposed sanctions against Crimea and Russia and have repeatedly extended and expanded them.

  1. “…returns control to Ukraine” read: gives Crimea to US! It ain’t gonna happen. It is simply impossible. Before the year was out US would have several military bases on the Crimea by Ukranian “invitation”, and all manner of pseudo-legalistic shenanigans would follow.

  2. Khalid & Andrew: Trump is just trying to show us (successfully) that he’s just as nuts as Obama & Hillary were on Crimea… The more things change, the more they remain the same. ;-).

  3. Sanctions enable our people to live in reality and to improve. We are thankful for sanctions. And Crimea….. Crimea is Russian. The battle glory of Russian Soldier. The peninsula, ancient history and saint memory. If anyone has aggressive opinion – try to come and get it. There’s enough square meters for all European and USA “dreamers”. To bury….

  4. Only a coward sends out a Bimbo to announce to the World that he is renigging/welching on his past evaluation of a democratic right to vote and to return/ reunite with its Motherland. Only a coward.

    • Garry: Nikki Haley is no bimbo — just Samantha Power deja vu all over again (on certain issues).

      Trump is also not a coward in the classic sense. In part, Trump did the illegal Yemen raid to show that he’s just as willing to waste the blood of American soldiers & civilians — to show that he’s macho and ‘not’ a coward. If only Trump had been willing to send Jared Kushner & Steve Bannon… ;-).

  5. Just how stupid and ignorant can these people in the Whore House be?
    Are they really that ignorant? Do they believe the rest of us believe their b.s.? Yes, the Trumpettes will swallow everything that spews forth from the Whore House but that’s their problem. Obvious lack of education.
    This is going to escalate into something nobody else wants. A mushroom cloud over Washington?
    Somebody tell these clowns to be for real!
    It’s looking like 1938 all over again.
    The ignorance coupled with the bellicosity of Trump and his clown posse are over the top.
    Let’s throw the whole bunch out of Town and do the elections over!

  6. Until USA Wehrmacht gains full control of all energy corridors coming out of the Caspian sea in all directions. Now, in ten, in hundred years, doesn’t matter. Everyone is welcome to join, the Talibans, the Azov, the Isil, the Nazists, everyone.
